New Forest Activities

Canoeing with New Forest Activities


New Forest Activities offer a range of outdoor activities to groups, families and individuals.  

From our water based activities including guided Canoeing and Kayaking tours on the Beaulieu River, to an exhilarating High Ropes experience, there is something to suit any age or ability. With our expert instructors there to help and guide you’re sure to have an amazing time whichever activity you choose.  

The ever popular Battlefield LIVE offers excitement and enjoyment using safe infra-red gaming guns.  No projectiles, no mess, no pain! There’s also the chance to learn a new skill whilst enjoying the New Forest surroundings with Bushcraft, Archery or Archery Tag. 

If you’re an explorer then hire a bike from New Forest Activities, with a whole range of maps and guides to get you on your way. 

For something completely different to entertain the kids keep an eye out for special seasonal activities such as Christmas Canoeing and watch the kids’ faces light up when they see Santa paddling towards them with a canoe full of gifts! 

After work activities are also available such as Paddle to the Pub. A great activity for a balmy summer’s evening. 

Groups are welcome at New Forest Activities.  Check out the great range of activities available all year round for Stag and Hen parties, Kids Parties, School Groups and Team Building Events.  

And if you’re stuck for gift ideas then why not buy an activity voucher for your loved ones so they can choose an activity to suit them?  Purchased simply over the telephone, these vouchers are valid for 12 months, giving plenty of time to visit us.
